Cheap and absolutely delicious. I'd recommend the tomato and cheese one. They close for a few hours at 12 but reopen in the afternoon

Tried almost everything. It’s just delicious. They have croissants with different fillings: Chocolate, ham, sausage, cheese. You get brownies, quiche, tartes, etc. And everything to a low price.

Went this morning as we arrived early in to Rurrenabaque and this place is truly amazing. The freshly baked goods are delicious. We will most definitely be back tomorrow and every other day we are here. Also the owner seems like a really lovely guy.

While volunteering in the jungle, with my friends we’d take turns to go to town and buy bread there for breakfast. Enough said. Also, their brownies are to die for.
